Notes / Commercial Description:
Arthur (1922-2005) was our grandfather’s youngest brother; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his 13 siblings. In his honor, this Saison is crafted from American malted barley, American and European hops, our distinctive farmhouse yeast and water from our well. Unfiltered and naturally carbonated, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Arthur.

750 bottle dated 8/18/17 purchased at the brewery on 4/18/18 and consumed on 4/23/18. Carbon copy of Florence with slightly more freshness (only 8 months old as opposed to 10). Too old or this isn't the style for us. One and done.

Another beer from March Madness 2015. James always bring the dank stuff, this was no different. Pours a golden color, haze is apparent. White head, 2/3". The aroma is a nice medley of sourdough, white wine, oak, barley, citrus and yeast.

Taste kind of mixes things up, they didn't go all traditional here, there is plenty of American input going on. There is a white grape and sourness mixed up in this that I didn't see coming. It mixes it up alternating between a clean crispness, but then has that light sourdough funk to it. I didn't want to like this beer, but it really gave me no choice. Nice interplay between the wine notes and the citrus acidity. What a neat summer it would be to have a bottle of this every weekend around the pool.

From the 750ml bottle purchased at Hill Farmstead Brewery. Pours light golden with the thin white head. Fruity, tart, almost cider-like aroma. Perfect saison.

Wow. This is delicious. Juicy citrus that practically bursts into your mouth like biting into a grapefruit or lemon. What a delightful IPA! Hill farmstead knows what they're doing

From the tap, faint yellow to white in clarity, classic notes of a saison including apples and on the sour notes at that

At The Sovereign on Draft. Pours a clear light golden amber with a slight head and lacing. Aroma has fruity hints, the taste follows the notes with pleasant fruity flavors and very balanced pleasant sourness. A very well made, well balanced beer.
